The final game of a three-game series will be played Saturday at Oriole park at Camden Yards between the Chicago White Sox (53-35) and Baltimore Orioles (286-60). The first pitch is scheduled for 1 :05 p.m. ET. Let’s look at BetMGM Sportsbook’s odds of White Sox vs. Orioles with MLB picks.
RHP Dylan Cease will be the White Sox’s starting pitcher. He is currently 7-4 and has a 1.30 WHIP, 4.14 ERA, 11.5 K/9, and 3.8 BB/9 in 87 IP. This spans 17 starts.
The Twins in Minnesota tuned Cease up last time. He allowed 6 runs on 6 hits, 2 walks and 8 strikeouts over 5 1/3 innings. Baltimore faced him May 27, and he allowed 1 run on 4 hits, 2 walks and 6 innings while recording 10 strikes.
RHP Spenser Watkins is the Orioles’ projected starting pitcher. He is 1-0 with a 1.50 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 2 K and 3 BB in 6 IP. This includes one start and one relief appearance.
Watkins gave up 1 run on 3 hits, 3 walks and 2 strikeouts over 5 innings Tuesday in his first major league appearance. He also picked up his first career win.

Orioles +145 (bet $100 to win $145)
Orioles +1.5 (-105)
White Sox 6, Orioles 4.
The WHITE SOX (175) are a bit pricey, but Watkins was impressive in his first game against the Jays. Although the Orioles are not to be trusted, it may be a closer game. Chicago is a good small-unit play, but I prefer the run line slightly.
Run line/Against spread (ATS).
Cease was a great player for the WHITE SOX -1.5 (-115) and they are a better option than Cease. He handled himself well against the Orioles earlier in this season. Chicago is therefore a better value on the run line. This season, Chicago is 6-0 ATS in Baltimore.
Cease performed admirably in his first game against the O’s, and Watkins impressed in his one start of the season. Although it’s not a large sample, it’s difficult to trust a rookie with no experience, the Under is an acceptable option if Watkins can replicate his performance last year.Last Updated on October 2, 2021
